First Card of the New Year

Hello there my crafty friends.  It's now 2015 and I am feeling much better and looking forward to a new year.  I'm praying for a much better year.  I do have to have back surgery but that's not for a few months yet.

As some of you know, there have been some changes over at Mark's Finest Papers and their Friends of Speedy TV challenges.  We have done away with some of the challenges, like Simple Salutations and Sketch with a Twist.  The design team members have been switched around and I am now on the Friends of Speedy TV design team.  I'm looking forward to working with some new ladies on this great team.

Our first challenge of the year went live on Monday and the theme is to create a Scenic Card.

I used the Francis Paper Doll set and the Mini Winter stamps to create my card.  I tore pieces of white cardstock and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to mimic snow drifts.  I love doing the paper piecing with these paper dolls.  

We have gone back to a once a week challenge time frame so you have until the 12th of January to get your entry in.  Remember if you use a MFP stamp you will get an additional entry.

Have a wonderful week and God bless you all.

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

It's been a while since I posted on my blog.  I will be back in January with some new work.  I just wanted to wish everyone of my followers and friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  I hope you enjoy your time with your friends and family.  May you be blessed.

Taking a Break

Hey everyone.  I know I have been MIA for a while, but I have been very sick.  I am going to be taking a break from crafting, design teams and card making for a while.  I have to take care of some health issues so that I can get back to normal.  Well, as normal as I can be.  LOL.  I hope to see y'all around blogland soon.  Take care and craft on my friends.

Penny's Challenge #196

Good Morning!  It's a crisp, cool day here in Northeast PA.  Thank you for joining me as we embark on a new challenge at Penny's.

Our theme for this challenge is Stripes and/or Dots.
Our sponsor is 

This sweet image is called Autumn Delight and can be found here in the store.  I chose stripes for my cards.  I guess you couldn't probably count the leaves as dots, but I chose patterned paper that had stripes.  The sentiment is from a CardsTV stamp set.

Thanks again for stopping by to see me.  Have a wonderful day and God bless.

Clear It Out Challenge #46

Welcome to my blog.  Thanks for joining me today.  It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge at 

Clear It Out.  Our theme this week is BIRTHDAY and our stash item is to use GLOSSY ACCENTS.

Our sponsor for this challenge is 

It's very hard to see, but my Glossy Accents is in the middle of the flowers.  I don't know why my pictures are coming out so dark.  I have plenty of light, but all my pics are dark.  I guess I should have my camera looked at.

Thanks again for stopping by.  I truly appreciate it.  Have a wonderful day.  God bless.

Ike's World #22 Midway Post

Hello friends.  Thanks for joining me for our midway post over at Ike's World Challenges.  Our theme for this challenge is FEATHERED FRIENDS.  There are some really pretty images that fit this theme in the Ike's Art Store.  Take a gander.

This sweet little birdie is an image called Blue Tit Rowan and she can be found in the store.  I used some Frosted Lace Stickles to add the "snow" to the berries and branch.  I looked up the bird on the internet to try to make it as realistic as possible.  Hope I did them justice.

Thanks again for stopping by.  I hope y'all have a wonderful day.  God bless.

Tuesday Throwdown #214

Happy Tuesday.  Thanks for joining me today.  I hope y'all are having a good day.

Today starts a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and our theme is NEW HOME.

We have a great sponsor for this challenge:  My Grafico

I used this cute little snail who looks like he's moving to a new home on this log.  I used my mini scoreboard to create a frame for the images.

Thanks again for joining me today.  I hope y'all have a wonderful day.  God bless.
